The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Review, Feat. Zotac: Fighting Brute Force With Power Efficiencyby Ryan Smith & Nate Oh on May 3, 2019 10:15 AM EST
Far Cry 5 (DX11)
The latest title in Ubisoft's Far Cry series lands us right into the unwelcoming arms of an armed militant cult in Montana, one of the many middles-of-nowhere in the United States. With a charismatic and enigmatic adversary, gorgeous landscapes of the northwestern American flavor, and lots of violence, it is classic Far Cry fare. Graphically intensive in an open-world environment, the game mixes in action and exploration.
The Ultra, High, and Normal presets were used. Far Cry 5 does support Vega-centric features with Rapid Packed Math and Shader Intrinsics, these were left off for testing. Far Cry 5 also supports HDR (HDR10, scRGB, and FreeSync 2). This testing was done without HD Textures enabled, an option that was recently patched in.
For Far Cry 5, the GTX 1650 is again perched in the GTX 1060 3GB and GTX 1050 Ti performance gap, pulling away further from the GTX 1050 Ti at more intensive settings. The RX 570, while slower than the GTX 1060 3GB in this title, is still firmly ahead of the GTX 1650.
